    Good on small deer. Go down a weight from the ordinary bullets you use. They seem to be need to be driven fast to open up.

    Well mine having the bc of a brick and launched at lowly 308 speeds they still open and do the damage out at 350y even when slipped in between the ribs on a meat saving shot.
    They open up well even as velocity drops off, then i imagine at some point they would completey fail to open.

    I took my .416RM out on goats. The bone busting Barnes X 400 grain monos at 2400 just went straight through. Boringly unspectacular but plenty loud from the factory magna-ported R93... Shooting through 12" pine trunks was more fun.
    Bill999 and Spudattack like this.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    Barnes are awesome. have never had an animal run away from one. Impalas are good driven fast they dont expand at all being solid brass but transfer alot of energy to the vitals dropping them on the spot they work well on neck shots.
